When did the flowers first appear on the cucumber plants? I honestly can’t remember but it feels like weeks that I’ve been watching and watering and wondering what was happening. I realised that the difficulty could be the lack of insects in the house to fertilise them.
But now as I have been getting ready for bed, I saw this and can only suppose that it is a cucumber in the making!
I do hope so. Even one cucumber would be so good – not least because organic cucumbers are hard to come by unless I go to a supermarket. And my daughter loves cucumber.
